Pollock's Textbook of Cardiovascular Disease and Rehabilitation
Although the mechanisms are not clear, both short and long sleep have been associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology
Even after centuries of research, the fundamental system of control of thermal balance in humans, as well as other mammals and homeotherms, remains controversial.
Skeletal Muscle Damage and Repair eBook
Muscle strains are the most common cause of muscle injury.
Advanced Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology
Here we discuss some of the general physiological mechanisms that maintain blood pressure when muscle demands for oxygen delivery are high and also the local mechanisms that match blood flow to metabolic demand.
The Athlete's Clock eBook
Athletes do their best to realize their genetic gifts and hard work in just a few clicks of the clock called competition. This phenomenon is seen through moments in time that serve to define the essence of sports itself.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise 5th Edition eBook With Web Study Guide
Traditionally, exercise physiologists have recommended one of three regimens to improve aerobic power: continuous exercise at a moderate to high intensity; long, slow (low-intensity) exercise; or interval training.
Laboratory Manual for Exercise Physiology eBook With Web Resource
In the transition from rest to exercise, systolic blood pressure initially rises rapidly, then levels off once steady state is attained (1, 3).
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes-2nd Edition
Although the blood lactate response to exercise is used widely to control and monitor training programs, many factors in addition to training adaptation can affect the blood lactate response. Therefore, one needs to consider the following points when collecting, analyzing, and interpreting blood lactate measurements.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes 2nd Edition eBook
Despite the widespread integration of hydrotherapy into an athlete�s postexercise recovery regime, information regarding these interventions is largely anecdotal. Although a number of physiological responses to water immersion are well researched, the underlying mechanisms related to postexercise recovery are poorly understood.
Clinical Exercise Physiology-3rd Edition
Initially, exercise and physical activity should focus on cardiovascular (i.e., aerobic) modes.
